Future action auteur Tsui Hark directs this amiable romantic comedy about a perpetually unemployed loser named Yan (Sam Hui Koon-kit), who would much rather hang out with his layabout buddies, Hing (Teddy Robin Kwan) and Sunny (Tsui), than look for gainful employment. One day, he happens upon a beautiful lass named Amy (Joey Wang Tsu-hsien) and falls head over heels. Amy, of course, is from a fantastically rich family, though she hides this fact from Yan because he hates rich people. When Yan eventually does find a job, it is at the very noodle shop that Amy's dad owns. Yan is stunned when he learns the truth and soon Amy's sundry lies catches up with her. Meanwhile, the plant's villainous manager is stealing thousands of dollars and is prepared to do anything to stay out of jail.
